Peccadillo Pictures

Looking for a new queer film to watch? This could be just what you need.

A UK trailer has just been released for Finnish gay drama A Moment In The Reeds, which was nominated for Outstanding Feature at this year’s Frameline San Francisco International LGBTQ Festival.

The film follows Leevi (Tom Of Finland star Janne Puustinen), who returns to Finland for the summer to help his father renovate their summer house in the city after studying abroad in Paris.

When an extra pair of hands is needed, Tareq (Boodi Kabbani), a Syrian asylum seeker, is hired, and as Leevi’s father heads back to the city the two men develop a close friendship that develops into a summer romance.

“A Moment In The Reeds places the long marginalised voices of sexual ethnic minorities centre-stage in this intensely heartfelt drama about the search for freedom, acceptance and a place to call home,” reads the film’s bio.

Writer and director Mikko Makela is attending a number of special Q&A screenings of the film across the UK, as follows: Picturehouse Central (29 August), Picturehouse Cambridge (6 September) and Broadway Nottingham (30 September).

If you can’t make those, the film’s released on DVD and VOD on 15 October.
